definitely sounds like a solid idea to send your 13 yo daughter away to a camping trip in the forest with a bunch of horny pubescent boys btw...I guess for some parents gender equality is worth some collateral damage

Why do you think the Guardian is reporting this? I'd just ignore it mate, doesn't affect you does it?

I guess not, so ignore the clowns and let them play in their circus

That's the whole point.

It no longer bothers me...Take yourself out of the equation and look at this stuff as entertainment....That's all it is

apparently an organization call Girl Scouts has existed since 1912.

so what are those new ones going to call themselves? Girl Boy Scouts?

anyway out of all the sjw things to get pissed off about this one should be pretty low on the list...

there's actually a potentially more annoying news about the same organization on the same page: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/jan/31/boy-scouts-of-america-transgender-children-identify-boys-enrol

and they have allowed gay troop leaders since 2015

I was in the Cub Scouts as a kid. Got my Webelos badge. :proud:

The current Girl Scouts are known for selling cookies.

As I understand it, this is so girls can do things like earn badges for activities similar to what the boys do. However, the girls and boys won't be part of the same den. They will be in separate dens.

As you might expect, the Girl Scouts are against this move because it devalues their organisation. Also, doesn't it defeat the purpose of having them under the same umbrella but then separating them by gender? Especially when there is an existing organisation which could simply adopt whichever measures they wanted to adopt from the Boy Scouts?

And Mise is right...it doesn't affect any of us, except maybe for Scoutmaster Yeni.

Ftr, I'd be really interested in seeing what would happen if the activities were exactly the same for boys and girls in the Scouts. They would probably scrap the Pinewood Derby for being a vulgar display of toxic masculinity.

This is their power, this is how the insanity spreads.

People have been shaking their heads and moving on since in the 70s, thinking "these people are insane, let them do what they do"

Look at the mess this type of thinking has landed us here in 2017. Confront insanity where you see it and stop it dead in it's tracks. Even in real life, when I hear people even utter insane phrases they've been programmed to say. I confront it, I make them try to prove it is real or that it makes sense. Essentially I nip it in the bud real quick and let them know it is not ok to indulge in fantasy.

This new breed of feminists are intent on taking over any medium or market which they see (or just simply label without seeing) as a boys' club but in which they have no real interest in.

Scouts is a recent example.

Then you have video games, which is already a medium with so many issues (e.g. ethically questionable practices by triple-A companies). It doesn't need everything being turned into a feminist issue (e.g. outrage now over Zelda having a main male character).

Then you have movies (see the female Ghostbusters).

Then you have the comic book universe. I'm totally fine with establishing new characters of different sexual orientations, etc. But it's ridiculous to take already established characters and slapping on a gender or race swap while also preaching to the readers.

It wouldn't be so bad if those lobbying for changes actually supported them (i.e. bought the product). But they don't, as many examples have shown. They see something established they want to force changes to that fans never asked for. And then they move along onto the next target once those changes are made.

Female Ghostbusters flopped, Marvel's changes to established characters flopped, etc. It shows that the changes were made for the sake of making changes and without any care for the actual product. It shows that the quality of the end product matters to people who speak with their dollars.

they should do more Lesbian movies

I would watch

if they were hot Lesbians, of course
No, that won't comply with our standards for inclusion and body positivity.

Obese, butch lesbians* is what you'll get. And you'll gosh darn like it!



*Disclaimer: some lesbians might have dicks seeing as we don't want to perpetuate gender stereotypes. Or maybe not, I'm actually not entirely sure where we stand on people transitioning from male to female. Do they still have male privilege?
